NoDaLiDa 2017 : 21st Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics
Call For Papers
21st Nordic Conference on Computational Linguistics (NoDaLiDa)
Monday, May 22, to Wednesday, May 24, 2017
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Northern European Association for Language Technology (NEALT)
invites submissions to its bi-annual conference on human language and
speech technologies. NoDaLiDa 2017 will be held between May 22 and May
24, 2017 at Conference Centre Wallenberg, centrally located in
Gothenburg. Please mark your calendars.
NoDaLiDa addresses all aspects of natural language processing and
computational linguistics — including work in closely related
neighbouring disciplines (such as, for example, linguistics or
psychology) that is sufficiently formalized or applied to bear
relevance to speech and language technologies.
We invite paper submissions in three distinct tracks:
+ regular papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research,
including empirical evaluation results, where appropriate;
+ short papers on smaller, focused contributions, work in progress,
negative results, surveys, or opinion pieces; and
+ student papers on completed or ongoing work, where at least the first
author is a Master or PhD student.
There will be a fourth track for system demonstrations, with a separate
call for papers and submission deadline in the spring of 2017.
Papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be included in
the NoDaLiDa 2017 proceedings, which is published as part of the NEALT
Proceedings Series by Linköping University Electronic Press.
Negotiations are underway to include the proceedings in the
ACL Anthology: http://aclweb.org/anthology/ as well.
